“Too many of us are OK with the NFL’s violence, because we don’t know these men.”-Shaun King

As you all get ready for the Super Bowl tomorrow I would like to leave you with this great article I found through the  Traumatic Brain Injury Resource Center on Facebook. They usually have interesting articles on information about Traumatic Brain Injury and every now and then I read one about concussions and brain injuries in football … Continue reading “Too many of us are OK with the NFL’s violence, because we don’t know these men.”-Shaun King

That hit too close to home

Yesterday I watched this weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live which was hosted by none other than the SNL legend Will Ferrell. I was looking forward to his monologue at the beginning of the show because as anyone would assume from him, I thought it was going to be really funny, but the truth is … Continue reading That hit too close to home

Don’t tell me it’s not that bad

It's not like you have cancer or something This really hurts my feelings, that someone would have the nerve to say that.

What happens to our brain and skull when they move?

What happened within this player's skull I read this article a couple of days ago and I can't stop thinking about it. It gave me a better understanding of my brain injury and why they tell me I have to avoid any sudden movements of my head, like on a rollercoaster. For some reason I … Continue reading What happens to our brain and skull when they move?

Good News Monday!

My first good news of today, one of my doctors told me he saw the lab results I sent him and he said they're great. I don't want to get ahead of myself because he really didn't say much more, but from his reaction I don't think there was anything wrong. Yay! Second, after I … Continue reading Good News Monday!

More NFL brain injury studies

40 percent of former NFL players suffer from brain injuries, new study shows I am very glad to see research is still being done on the link between brain injury and football players, but I don't like the results of the research. These studies that have been done shows that more than half of the … Continue reading More NFL brain injury studies
